Just Checking In

Do you have cold hands, feet, are constipated, no energy, gain weight easy?

Cold hands, constipation and hair falling out are just a few of the symptoms of a very common condition that I see in my office every single day.

Have you guessed what it could be?

It’s hypothyroidism.

Here are a few more of the symptoms.

Fatique, weight gain, depression, insomnia, infertility, oversensistive to hot or cold, poor circulation, chronic pain, require a ton of sleep to function, chronic digestive problems, itchy dry skin,dry or brittle hair, edema,lose of outer 1/3 of your eyebrows.

HOW MANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS DO YOU HAVE?

If you do you may have a thyroid problem.

Generally you go to your M.D. and get your TSH checked.  If it’s out of range then you get some meds for it.  You get re-checked and see that it is in normal range but you still have the symptoms listed above.

You get frustrated when you still feel bad and can’t figure out what is going on.  Then you may start thinking is it all in my head?  It’s not.  You just haven’t had all the thyroid testing that you need to have done.  You need to get your antibodies checked to see if you have Hashimoto’s.  This is a condition where your immune system has gone awry and is now attacking the thyroid gland and starting to kill the thyroid cells.  The TSH levels will look good the whole time but your immune system is attacking a destroying the theyorid.  Thi sis what we call an auto-immune condition.  90% of all thyroid cases are auto-immune and they never ever know it.

I do 1o thyroid checks including the antibody tests to see if you have a thyroid issue and if you have Hashimoto’s.  If you have Hashimoto’s I then use strategies to help calm and balance the immune system down.  One of those strategies is to get your cells fucntioning better so the genes that turn on the antibody reaction can be calmed down.  Diet is huge!!

It’s a pretty restricted diet but it works great.  You want to calm the fire down on your thyroid.  Everytime you eat the wrong foods you are putting fuel on the fire.  Getting specific common foods checked to see if you are sensitive is another blood test we may do.  This helps tell you what those foods are.

Gettign a handle on chemical, physical, and emotional stressors is huge also.

It’s pretty cool to see people feel better, most of they symptoms decrease, and they may even lose some weight on the diet.  Most do.

If you or a loved one have a thyroid condition feel free to give me a jingle.  I just did a thyroid workhop last monday night n which we had 10 people learn about this.  It’s such a common condition and we have good success with getting good results with people.

Ok, last football game of the regualr season for the Chieftains was last friday against Ellsworth.  We took it to them and won 42-6.  Ellsworth was hte #4 team in division 4 to start the season.  Now we have New Richmond this friday and htat should be a good game.  Then it’s off to playoffs.

Hereis a great picture of Riley I took right before the national anthem  It’s my favorite one  Congrats to Meredith Nelsona nd the whole Osceola Chieftain girls golf team for making it to state.  A big way to go!!

Riley Edling in prayer.

The keys to success in life.

Confuscious said the key to success in life is “when you fall down 8 times, you get up 9 times”.

Most people quit things after the 3rd or 4th fall and make more excuses.

Just hang in there and keep moving forward inspite of all the obstacles..

That is why I love sports so much because you can have failure one second and success the next and you just don’t know when either of them is going to happen.

Above is a pic of Riley and his buddy form Durand after the game.

In baseball you can strike out 7 out of 10 times and still be an all-star batting 300.

In football you can fumble one time and then score a touchdown the next.

You just don’t know in life.  You just have to keep being positive just when you think everything and everyone else is coming down on you.

It’s all about the opportunity to do your best.  When you get your shot take advantage of it, even if you fall on your face just get back up and keep going.  Don’t let anyone keep you down.

I say this because of my own challenges in sports, marriage, kids, my practice, it’s always something.

We all have challenges, also known as opportunities.  It’s how you look at it.  Now I can get down and out sometimes but not for long because I know bad times are fleeting and good times lie ahead.

Go out today and do something different something that uplifts you and moves you in a positive way.

The Osceola Chiefs won on Saturday down in Durand 35-14.  We had to play Saturday to give Durand another day of practice. The poor school had a bad food poisoning and the whole school was affected.  It was their first game in 3 weeks.

We are now playoff eligible so it’s exciting times for the boys.  Come cheer the boys on this friday night as we take on Ellsworth in the final home game of the year.

I’m doing a thyroid recovery workshop this next monday night October 13th at 6:30 here at my office.  If you or  a loved one have a thyroid issue and are struggling this is a must attend class.  It’s free.  I only have room for 8 people so sign up now.

A little bump in the road called life.

We all have times in our lives where things just don’t go the way we want them to.

It could be with our family life, our health, finances, relationships, you name it it can happen any time and any place.

My son Riley and all the Osceola Chieftain football players took it on the chin last friday down in Somerset.  It was a total spanking.

While they just got dominated by a superior team they now get the opportunity to play 6 more games and have a great season.  It’s all about how you approach it with your attitude and then taking action.

The Chiefs can mope around and feel sorry for themselves and have a poor practice week or they can learn to get better, work hard, build each other up and come together as a team and have fun doing it.

One play at a time.

Lombardi said winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.  Well I love to win as much as any one, but there is something positive that can come out of a blow out.  Those young athletes get to figure that out this week at practice and then be ready to bring friday night against Baldwin.

If you have poor health you can’t reflect on the past, you must get knowledge and then take action with your new found knowledge.  I help many people with chronic health conditions.  If they follow my lead with the knowledge I teach them, chnge their diet, and manange their stress they can get big time results.  If they don’t take action then nothing changes and they will just get sicker with time.

Most americans won’t do anyting about their health until a crisis develops.  You really want to be pro-active daily with how you think, eat, and move your body.

Being healthy doesn’t have to be that hard.  Americans just have to get out of the way of their poor health choices and start making better ones.

Well we are going to get our first big  cold spell of the season.  Fifty five sounds chilly for friday nights football game.  Six months from now that will sound hot!

Adapting to change whether it be weather, diet, exercise, does take a little bit of getting used to.  As long as you are moving forward in a positive way it’s all good!!

Life is a marathoon, not a sprint.  The same with your health so take it day to day and be patient with your self and your health results.  The little things daily make the difference.

Go Gophers

Congrats to the Gophers, nice win over Middle Tennessee State.  First test of the year this weekend at TCU.

Former Somerset student athlete Galen Elmore saw a lot of action in the second half for the Gophs on defense.

What do Acorns have in common with your health?

Another fast summer week and it just seems to go faster and faster.  School is fast approaching and the sumac is already changed.  Every year it just goes faster and faster.  The only thing that seems to go slow is the NFL pre-season.  To me that seems like the longest 6 weeks ever.  Lets just get to the first real game.

Yes it’s true, the Acorns are falling.  I sat and watched 3 squirrels pick up 50 or so acorns yesterday afternoon.  They are already storing food for the winter.  No carbs in the nuts.  That’s a great source of energy that will have lasting power for them to get through the winter.  We Americans eat way to many carbs which only last a short period of time.  If we don’t use them then our body converts it to the bad form of fat and will really screw with your physiology.  Keep putting good things in and good things will come back out for you.  Be patient when you want to make changes with your health.  Keep the discipline and stick to the process of eating, moving, and thinking better.

Boy, my leaves are turning.

As I was in amazement watching the squirrels yesterday eat those acorns it is amazing how one acorn can eventually grow to be a giant oak tree.  I went up and pushed the oak tree and gave it a big hug.  it will probably live longer than me and it’s probably already 70 years old or so.  That tree needed plenty of sunlight and water to nuture it and make it grow to a 60 foot tree.  What would have happened if the tree didn’t get enough sunlight or water?  It would probably just die in time.  The same with our body.  It needs good water, good food, good fresh air, goood sunlight, and we need to be nurtured.  If we don’t get these we end up eventually and probably prematurely getting some form of sickness or disease that takes us from living the life we want to.

Being healthy doesn’t have to be that hard.  We just have to get out of the way of all the intereference we create for ourselves.

Ok, Osceola Chieftains have their first football game friday night against my alma mater, St. Croix Falls.  I think we will be pretty tough and competitive in our conference.  The boys seem to get along well and they work hard.

Make sure you keep hydrated daily.  You should try to get 1/2 your body weight in ounces.  It’s going to get hot by the end of the week so it’s not jsut the athletes that need to hydrate.

Come in and meet our new intern Steve Siqueiros.  He will be here until mid November when he then graduates from Chiropractic school.

Using on ARP wave therapy on a lot of our athletes and some other chronic tough cases and getting very nice results.  Stop by for a consult to see if you are a candidate for this form of therapy.

Ok, that’s it for today, make it a fantastic day!!  You can do it!  Dr. E

This works great for knee problems.

What a fun filled weekend it was for me.  It seems like August is a time of month to get as many fun things done as possible before the weather starts changing.

Friday night I went to the Raiders-Vikings game at TCF bank stadium on the U. of M. campus.  What a great place to enjoy a football game.

Pre-season games typically aren’t that good.  Usually reserves trying to make the team get to play and the top players are generally held out or only play a quarter.

I do enjoy seeing players get there chance and then taking advantage of it.  Adam Thielen who played at Mankato State had a stellar game for the Vikis friday night.  He ran a punt back 40 yards and made a great tackle on special teams.  While he is a long shot at making the team he sure looked impressive as he was staying in the moment of the game and bringing it big time.

If everyone on the vikes brought it like that kid did they would be unstoppable.   Lets see how the QB situation plays out.  I’d go with the rookie Teddy Bridgewater.  Throw him in there and see what he can do.

The magic starts friday August 22 at OHS field

My neighbor Steph Nelson got married this weekend and it was awesome to see her so beautiful and so happy.  What an incredible moment for her and Brandon and all her friends and Family.

I also played in the Parsons electric annual golf tournament on sunday.  It’s my buddies from high school Mike Northquest, Jeff Erickson, and Jeff Parks.  We had so much fun and even tied for first place at 10 under.

These fun summer weekends are awesome, especially with the nice weather we have been having.  Get out and enjoy it because we all know what’s right around the corner.

So I’ve been dinged up for about 10 days now with my right knee.  I had just been over doing it and and it flared up playing baseball.  It gets swollen and then I lose strength and range of motion and it leaves me gimping around . When you can’t do what you want to do it sure isn’t fun.  It’s getting better everyday since I’ve been doing what it takes to get the swelling down and improve range of motion, then start getting the strength and stability back in it.  The ARP machine works wonders at getting the swelling off the knee and improves circulation so range of motion can improve.  It’s incredible how fast the muscles shut down once you have an injury.  It’s so important to start the rehab process immediately.  Sitting around and hoping things get better just isn’t going to do it.  The pain may go away but you really neeed to get full fucntion back in to whatever area the problem is.  Then you also need to re-condition the whole body, especially if you have been layed up for a bit.  This has been a good reality check for me to help me understand what patients go through when they are hurting. There is also an emotional side to it which sometimes can be difficult than the physical side.  If you are interested in seeing what ARP can do for you just email me or call for a free ARP session.

One thing I really promote is the benefit of regualr chiropractic adjustments.  I’ve got a new intern here at our office, his name is Steve Siqueiros.  He will be with me until mid November when he graduates forom Chiro school.  It’s going to be great getting more htan my weekly adjsutments.  I work out pretty hard and my body and mind need a recovery and adjustments help me so much with this plus overall energy and well-being.  Steve  is from St. Croix Falls and has played for the Osceola Braves and now plays for the St. Croix River Bandits in baseball.

The Osceola high school football team is looking fast.  Look out Somerset!!

Until next week, get out there and enjoy life to the max.  I’m here to help add value to your life and help you be all you can be!!

The Last Camp

This past weekend was the last camp Mary and I will ever bring our son Rileyto.  What a fun filled process it has been.  It seems like we just started all the camps and activities with our kids and now Riley is a week away from his last football season and his senior year.

We were down at the Jeff Trickey-Randy Wright football camp for Quarterbacks and Receivers.  It was an outstanding camp and they really worked the boys on technique.  The best thing I liked about the camp was the emphasis on being a leader and having and building your character.

As parents we are always preaching that to our kids but it was great to have the kids hear it from someone else.  These camps have priceless pearls of wisdom not only on football but on life.  That’s what I love about sports.  It’s a lot like life.  You will have many ups and downs. It’s about not looking back but staying in the movement and moving forward with each and every day.

Derek Salewski taking a nap on the field. Naps are good!

The discipline sports demand are something I think are so valuable for our kids.  As adults it would be nice to have camps that trained your body and mind like these sports camps.  I guess we are kind of on our own to make it happen. I’ve been to many camps myself as a kid and watching my kids at camps and it’s interesting how focused and driven these kids were.  They were so attentive, worked their tails off, and were all very respectful.  Some of it may be because they were mostly juniors and seniors in high school and were more mature, but also these young athletes are looking toward bettering themselves with the hope of playing college football.

This camp was on the facilities at Coe College in Cedar Rapids Iowa.  What a beautiful campus.  Cedar Rapids seems to be an industrial blue collar type of city.  It’s interesting to see how many private small colleges there are in Iowa.  I’ve only been through Iowa a handful of times but there are some beautiful areas.  The corn must be 8 feet tall right now!!

One of the things they emphasised at the camp was the importance of getting enough sleep.  I’ve been preaching good nutrtion and good sleep  for years for the athletes I work with and all my patients.  This is when your body recovers, your brain recharges, and your hormones get balanced out and get you ready for a new day.  If you aren’t geting enough sleep you sare stressing your brain, your adrenals and will create a breakdown in your body-mind.  You will be more likely to get injured and not be able to compete like you want or lose weight like you may want to or just be healthy like you should be.  If you have a chance for a nap go ahead and take one too.

I want to share what I do in the morning for breakfast.  What I like to do on M,W, and fridays is get my nutra-bullet out and put all my supplements in there with a scoop of either clearvite which is a rice based protein powder or sometimes I’ll do the whey based protein.  I then add my favorite fruit, ususally a handful of blue berries, a scoop of greens or a handfull of blueberries and let the nutra bullet do it’s thing. You can add some coconut oil in there also, just a teaspoon and this helps emulsify your greens and allows for better absorbtion of your vitamins and minerals.  Try some spinach or kale leaves or kale leaves also.

Another great smootie I love is a handful of ice with 6 ounces water, add 4 ounces coconut milk, and one avocado and mix in nutrabullet.  Try it, I’m sure you will love it!!  It’s called a shamrock shake and it’s yummy yummy!!

I also like to do a quick 4 minutes of weight bearing exercises to stimulate my fat burning metabolism and then follow it with a shake. It’s very simple and easy great way to start your day.

Remember to not focus on yesterday but rather to stay in the moment of today.  Do this with how you eat, think, and move and you’ll be way ahead of the game called life.

It doesn’t get much better.

Summer is really the time of the year I enjoy because of the weather.  We folk up here love our four seasons and although we may bitch about the winter and the extremem cold we are very proud of our winters.  This past weekend was one of those remarkable summer weekends you can look back on when it’s 20 below in the winter.

I went down to the North South Shrine All-Star foootball game Saturday in Oshkosh to watch two of my patients play for the North team.  Mark Johnson from Osceola and Travis Shackelton from Baldwin Woodville played.  They both had outstanding games.  I’m very proud of them.  Mark will be going to UWRF and Travis to Stout to go to school and play football.

It was 34 years ago since I played in that game and I hadn’t been over there since then.  Interesting how some things had changed while others hadn’t changed a bit.  The campus is quite nice.  It’s a long drive to Oshkosh and back but it allowed Tucker Hazzard and I to visit two different campuses.  We stopped at UW-Stevens Point which is a very nice enviromentally friendly campus.  It had been 35 years since I’ve been to that campus and I was impressed  how clean and friendly it was.  I think the UW system is an excellent choice for our young graduating high school students to attend one of these fine institutions.

Summer is halfway done.  We are just a little over 30 days from the first high school football game, the NFL camps start this week.  It’s my favorite time of the year when football comes around.  I’m going to enjoy the hot weather for now but my favorite season is the fall when temps are perfect to workout in and the feel of football in the air is what I love.

Good  idea to get your kids in for a good spine and extremity check up before the fall sports start.  Once they start they put a lot on load on these kids and sometimes their bodies start breaking down.  Adjustments help decrease the load and allow for better recovery.  I’ve helped keep a lot of athletes going over the years and I love working with these kids in keeping them on the field.  Symptoms are generally the last thing to come on and if you can see a dysfunctional movement pattern or a restriction in joint motion and catch it early you can prevent a lot problems from developing down the road.

Remember to keep the diet clean.  A anti-inflammatory diet consisting of tons of vegtables, good fruits, and organic beef, chicken or fish is excellent.  I love adding coconut oil to the diet also.  Good fats are crucial for your body.  Fats like avocados are great.  Try one in a smoothie, it’s fantastic.  Another thing we do at home is have a big glass container of a gallon water, and then we cut up a bunch of limes and put in there with just a little teaspoon of grade A organic maple syrup for flavoring.  Just sip that all day and it’s a great natural detoxifier.  Getting out in the sun for some vitamin D is excellent for your body also.  You want to get as much of your body exposed as possible.  20 minutes or so when ever you can get out is good.  Everyone I check on blood work shows there Vitamin D to be deficient.

Take time to de-stress your mind and body.  Sleep is imperative in repairing your body.  I’ve got to get a good 8 hours a night.  I think young athletes need  even more sleep.  I know my son Riley needs a good 9 hours nightly.  The more you stress your mind-body the more sleep you need.

OK, that’s it, if you haven’t been in for adjustment for a time I’d love to be able to serve you.  If you have a chronic health issue which you are frustrated with or not getting answers give me a hollar.  My metabolic practice incorporates many lab tests which your regular doc typically will not test.

Make it a awesome incredible week!!!

The above pic is the 50 yard line on the new Osceola high school football field.   You may see me out there running the track or doing sprints and body weight exercises on the field.  This is open for public use.  Get out and use it!!  The track is very receptive to your body compared to the old track.

This field I feel is the most incredible facility in the state of Wisconsin.  What a great investment for our kids and our community.

Not being able to do what you want to do is no darn fun.

I hope all of you had an incredible 4th of July weekend.  It sure was a busy one for me.  It started early friday morning with the Siren 5 k run.  I did a 19:40 which was pretty good.  That’s 3 sub 20 minute 5k’s this year.  Interesting how I wasn’t running that fast 5 years ago.  The only thing different is increasing intervals and doing speed and agility work with the high school football players.

Time to enjoy summer.

When I was standing in line to registar for this race and at the starting line waiting for the gun to go off I heard people telling stories of how they haven’t been able to run like they normally would because of injury.  One of the most common one’s I hear in people over 30 or people who put on way to much mileage way to fast is plantar fascitis.  This can be quite debilitating.  Everytime you stand up to walk it hurts like the dickens in the heel.  It’s just about impossible to have any type of productive run when you are compensating due to the pain it produces.  Then when you do run your gait is altered and then you can get a whole bunch of compensation patterns that set in and then watching these people run looks painful.  If you have ever had it you know what I’m talking about.  There is hope.   I see and treat this everyday in my office.  You shouldn’t have to be off for months with this type of problem, but that’s what I hear when I talk or see people that come in.  You have to correct underlying poor biomechanics first.  I usually will use kinesiotape to help and then get custom fit orthotics which work great for most people.  You also need a lot of soft tissue trigger point work to work out the adhesions in the calf and foot muscles and adjusing the pelvis and lower extremities is crucial for good outcomes also.  Once you can walk without pain then go to 1/4 speed jog, then 1/2 and work up form there.  I also like doing a variety of activites to condition the whole body.  You don’t have to suffer if you have plantar fascitis.  Lets get you back in the game of life and start enjoying it again.

Another common condtion I see every day is peripheral neuropathy.  This is a neuro-metabolic condition which can effect the feet where you have pain, numbness, or can’t tell where your feet are.  It’s very disabling for people since they don’t know where there feet are in space.  That’s why these people fall alot because they can not feel there feet hit the ground.  I see this commonly in diabetics, peopel with spinal stenosis of the low back where the nerves get pinched is another cause of neuopathy, along with many others.  One of the easiest things you can do to help this condition is getting off gluten.  Gluten is in grain and there are numerous studies which show this creates inflammation and makes peripehral neuropathy worse.  Adjusting the lower extremities, using vibration, laser, and I love the ARP wave therapy we use at our clinic.  The ARP wave helps waken those dying neurons up.  Neuropathy patients are all different and can be difficult cases since they are so varied.  If you have peripheral neuropathy or know someone that does have it you have nothing to lose by giving this a fair shot.  The medical treatment for this is basically Gabapentan medication and then just live with it.

I’m starting to see a bunch of overuse injuries in young athletes who are trying to get in shape for there fall sports.  Most are due to to much stress on their growing bodies and they just can’t keep up and the body starts breaking down.  Do not train through pain.  Good idea to get these kids in here for a good biomechanical evaluation.  Lets get them fixed up so they can enjoy their sport and be fully functional.

I want to give a big shout out to Osceola grad Mark “MJ” Johnson and Baldwin Woodville grad Travis Shackelton for making the shrine football game.  It’s on the 19th of July and those boys are well deserving of this accomplishment.  Mark will be going to school at UWRF and Travis at UW Stout.  Both will be playing football there.  Osceola’s head football coach Scott Newton will be an assistant coach for the team.

July is a great month of summer.  The heat is finally here and it’s a great time to get out and enjoy life.  I’ll take the heat anyday over the cold.  I don’t know how we all do it up here in the winter.

I power washed 8 hours arond our pool area this weekend.  I’m finally done with all the major to do list outside our house.  That was brutal hard on my body.  Be careful if you power wash.  I have a huge gash above my ankle from where I accidently power washed myself.  Those power washers are remarkable.  Talk about getting things clean.

Powerwashing works miracles.

OK, that’s it for today.  Keep up moving your body, cleaning your diet up, and being grateful in life!!

It’s done!

I’ve never been the most handy guy.  Fixing things around the house, putting toys together, painting, carpentry work, oil changes, and most guy kind of stuff I hire out.  Thank God for people that are skilled in doing the things I don’t like or aren’t skilled in.

The past 4 weeks I’ve been on a crusade for getting the outside of the house fixed up.  It started with taking the fence down around the pool.  Once that came down I knew we neeeded the major overhaul for landscaping since it looked really bad.  18 years and we haven’t done a thing.  Talk about neglect and no maintence!

Things opening up.

Once the fence came down it was non stop cutting and pulling everything in sight.  I’ve got a 15 foot high pile of brush to prove it.  We hired Tom Lemire to do the landscaping and he and his crew did a fantastic job.  I never realized what 10 minutes of his bobcat could do would take me a weekend to do.  We moved the steps from the porch to open up the patio area and it looks 1000% better.

The thing I’m committed to do now is to keep up with weekly little maintence so It will always look good and I figure this is probably the last big project we will ever do at our house.   I’m always preaching about prevention and doing the little things all day for your mind and body so you won’t need a big overhaul down the road someday.  Now it’s time to do that with the inside and outside of our house.

Anyone have big plans for the 4th?  I love fireworks and celebrating our freedom.  I remember  the 1976 Bicentennial celebration.  That was so cool.  We are a young nation of 238 years and there is no where better to be then the good old USA.  The opportunities this nation has are phenomenol.  It’s what you make of it that counts.

I’ve been working with a lot of chronic conditions like peripheral neuropathy, auto-immune conditions, and many more neurodegenerative cases.  While these can be challenging cases most do quite well.  Changing the diet is the most difficult for some but the one’s that do note a huge improvement in overall health and well being.  Removing inflammatory foods like gluten a

Steps now facing the west.

nd dairy can really help people calm their immune system while healing the gut and making life a lot more enjoyable.  If you or a loved one has some form of chronic problem and are not getting help then let me know, maybe I’ll be able to help them in some way or form.  It’s fun seeing sick people get better and be able to have a more enjoyable life.   If you can’t do the things you want to do in life then just pick up the phone and call me.

Make this week an incredible week, have a fantastic 4th.  We will be open through thursday and off friday the 4th.

Compete on and off the track.

Mary and I have had a blast watching the boys and girls track team here in Osceola.  The sectional meet was last friday and it is great to see kids competing.

Some kids are injured, some kids are sick, some kids are nervous, some are confident.  You never quite know what will happen at a track meet.  One thing I observed was no matter what was going on in their mind or their body these kids competed and brought it.

Sports are where kids learn to compete.  They will need this when they are on their own and have to deal with all the things that occur in life like maybe making a living, a job, marriage, raising kids, working with others.

Every day life is a little bit of a competition.  You have to show up, practice, craft your skills, and do your best.  There is always someone out there who is probably doing more or who is better, but if you give it your all that’s all you can ask of your self.

I think sometimes with our health we all take it for granted and we don’t do a great job of taking care of our selves until a crisis hits, or you aren’t feeling so hot, or you can’t seem to do the things you used to.

Aimee Rice Strand back to defend title at state.

The incredible thing is if you start eating really clean foods, start moving your body, and have a better attitude your body and mind can get better.

I’ve been doing a ton of weight loss in the clinic and people have been losing weight, tons of inches, and are feeling the best they have in years.  It’s very simple strategies of getting back to the basics with fundamentals of  being healthy.

The bottom line is with being healthy, competing in sports or life is how bad do you want it?  Are you willing to put the time, energy, discipline, and perhaps some money into your health and well being?

Anytime you put energy in to your health the rewards will come back sooner than later and last a long time if you keep at it.

Sometimes set backs do occur and it’s how you respond to those set backs that determines your success.  Hang  in there and keep moving forward.

Believe in yourself.  Others believe in you!!

You can do it!!

Until next time, don’t let a rainy day get you down and keep you from achieving what ever you want.  Dr. E

P.S.  Mary and I will be down in LaCrosse for the state track meet friday and saturday.  I believe the running events do not start until 3 so we will have our normal hours on friday.  Congrats to all the Osceola track athletes.  The girls won the sectionals and we have a bunch of kids going.  Big shout out to Riley Edling for going in the 4×100.

P.S.P.S.  Osceola boys baseball takes on St. Croix Falls here tomorrow 5pm.  Should be a good one.
